The 3M™ Flange Adapter adapts a wheel with a 1 in (2.54 cm) centre hole to fit onto a tool with a shaft smaller than 1 in (2.54 cm). They can be used on many types of tools including bench grinders and die grinders, and adapts flap wheels, deburring wheels, unitized wheels or any wheel with a 1 in (2.54 cm) center hole. Two types are offered: a stamped metal Flange Adapter 3, or a telescoping Flange Adapter 5.

3M™ Flange Adapters add versatility to your tools by ensuring a secure fit for abrasive wheels when the wheel's internal diameter core size is larger than the shaft of the tool. These stamped metal or plastic telescoping adapters are made exactly to size from quality materials to ensure reliable tool attachment and abrasive performance. Using the 3M™ Flange Adapter is simple, and provides the ability to adapt wheels of 1 in (2.54 cm) centre hole size to a variety of smaller shaft sizes. Just place the adapter into the wheel's center hole and fit it onto the tool or bench motor shaft. Be sure to use any flanges, washers, or retaining nuts as appropriate to safely mount the wheel to the shaft. These adapters work easily with most tools, and are used most commonly with hand and bench motors. Rather than ordering a new set of abrasive wheels with custom center hole sizes or additional tools with different shaft diameters, use these adapters to save time and money.
